PX658 C. elegans fxSi1 I; fxSi4 II; fxSi6 III; spe-44(fx123[spe-44::degron]) IV; fog-2(fx111) V. Show Description
fxSi1 [pie-1p::TIR-1::mRuby::unc-54 3' UTR + loxP, I: 2851003] I. fxSi4 [hsp-16.41p::PEEL-1::tbb-2 3'UTR + loxP, II: 8420157] II. fxSi6 [hsp-16.41p::PEEL-1::tbb-2 3' UTR + rpl-28p::mKate2::unc-54 3'UTR + rps-0p::HygR::unc-54 3' UTR, III: 10158855] III. Heat-shock strain can be maintained at 20C without any issues. Degron tag was inserted into the endogenous spe-44 locus, allowing auxin-inducible spermatogenesis arrest and reversible male sterility. Heat-shock-induced expression of PEEL-1 will cause lethality in both sexes. fxSi4 was originally inserted in a CB4845 background, but has been sufficiently backcrossed so that PX658 is >98.5% JU2526 genetic background.
